Aerospace and Defense Seminars Flying in to a City Near You

5/8/2003 - The MathWorks announced a series of seminars for engineers and scientists within the aerospace and defense industries. The seminars, located across the country, will highlight new capabilities and features of Release 13, the latest version of The MathWorks entire product line. Release 13 includes several new products and faster computation and system development capabilities for desktop and embedded applications. In addition to the seminars, the company will hold The MathWorks International Aerospace and Defense Conference in June.

At the seminars, engineers from The MathWorks will demonstrate how its products can be used for acquiring, analyzing, and visualizing scientific data, and modeling and simulating complex mechanical, electrical, and control systems. MathWorks engineers will also show how the software code of these models can be automatically generated to run the actual system, simulator, or hardware-in-the-loop test and validation system. Some seminars will also discuss how using the Image Processing Toolbox with MATLAB offers a complete environment for performing image analysis and developing image-based algorithms and applications.

Defense Applications: Communications and Signal Processing
Engineers provide a technical overview of simulation and automatic code generation techniques that address complex system design, including a simulation of satellite communications and radar systems as well as system-level design and implementation of real-time signal processing algorithms on FPGAs and DSPs.

Advanced Image Processing for Aerospace and Defense Applications
This seminar explains how MATLAB and the Image Processing Toolbox offer the most complete environment for performing image analysis and developing image-based algorithms and applications.

Modeling Mechanical Systems with SimMechanics
This informative seminar will present how Simulink and SimMechanics can be used by engineers to model and simulate mechanical systems to find and fix design problems before building costly physical prototypes.

Using Simulink to Develop Embedded Software for Aerospace Control System Applications
Product demonstrations will show Simulink users how to manage, define, and create complete software applications using The MathWorks Simulink and Real-Time Workshop products. Using this approach, control system designers and software development engineers can work together to avoid time-consuming, manual coding tasks and reduce the potential for errors, ultimately producing better products, while reducing time-to-market and costs.

Model-Based Design of Embedded Control System Software
This seminar, intended for attendees who are unfamiliar with The MathWorks products, will demonstrate how The MathWorks products provide a complete, visual, and interactive environment for the model-based design of embedded control systems, improving time-to-market and reducing costs.
